Quatro vs Flex: ATSC 1.0 Tuner Performance

Post by Rusty123 »

I've browsed many topics, but I can't seem to find a direct answer to this question: Ignoring ATSC 3.0 capability and the USB port, is there a quantifiable difference in the tuner performance between the Connect Quatro and Flex 4K models (HDHR5-4US vs HDFX-4K)? For example, does the latter deal with multipath better?

Thanks!

Broadly speaking, they will be on par with each other for ATSC 1.0 performance. There might be some edge cases where one or the other works better, as they do use two different brands of tuners, but I would not expect that to be the norm, and it would be hard to say which is definitively "better".
